Former First Lady Barbara Bush was released from a Houston hospital after undergoing treatment for pneumonia.

The 88-year-old wife of former President George H.W. Bush has been at the Houston Methodist Hospital since Monday, ABC News reports.

“I cannot thank the doctors and nurses at Houston Methodist enough for making sure I got the best treatment and got back to George and our dogs as quickly as possible,” Mrs. Bush said.
